This is one of our favorite recipes which come to our rescue when we're in a "what's for dinner?" pinch. Not only is it SUPER easy, it's also SUPER yummy, and will impress any guest! The buttery, mild taste of the tilapia pairs perfectly with the sweet basil and salty capers from the spread.
Serves 4, Prep Time = 5 min, Cook Time = 12 - 20 min
- 4 Tilapia fillets, fresh or frozen
- 1 jar of Le Sorelle's Terra Rubra Basil and Caper spread
- Adamo Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 F. Drizzle some EVOO on the bottom of an oven safe dish. Arrange your tilapia fillets evenly in the dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dollop the contents of the jar of Terra Rubra Basil and Caper Spread evenly over the fillets. Drizzle a bit more of EVOO over the fillets. Place in the oven and bake for circa 12 minutes if your fillets are fresh, or 20 or so minutes if they are frozen. Since oven temperatures vary, make sure that the oil is bubbling at the bottom of the pan and that your fillets have turned white and opaque. Don't over bake or they'll dry out!
Serve with lemon lemon slices and fresh basil garnish. And drizzle with our De Carlo Lemon Pressed Olive Oil for an extra bit of citrus-y flavor!
